Activision have announced that they’re publishing a new Transformers game for “kids of all ages”. It’s going to be called TRANSFORMERS PRIME (in capitals, apparently) and will be based on the “hit animated television show”.
In collaboration with Hasbro, the game lets – and here’s where it completely loses me – “fans play as their favorite AUTOBOT characters and embark on an action-packed adventure to save the earth from the evil MEGATRON and his new secret weapon.”
“Players step into the roles of OPTIMUS PRIME, BUMBLEBEE, ARCEE, AUTOBOT RATCHET, BULKHEAD and more as they explore unique vistas all around the world with brawler-style combat and diverse driving sequences.”
“Along the way, gamers cultivate friendships with Jack, Miko and Raf — the human characters from the show — as Team Prime sets out to protect mankind and eliminate the DECEPTICONS once and for all.”
“We are collaborating closely with the series creators to capture all the adventure, humor and friendships from the show to create an authentic action experience for TRANSFORMERS fans of all ages to enjoy,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing.
The game will be released for the Wii, 3DS and DS later this year.
